  • Peter Collins, hope that's sarcasm. And Anthony, take it easy there fella, you sound triggered. Is everyone a racist or kkk now?

New Nite Cap

The new facade looks amazing! Does anyone know what kind of business is going into the old Nite Cap?

  • EBKitty Stalking around EB

    The food is tasty, but it's salads, and sandwiches for the most part. Few doors down, the same offerings. Big deal. Losing a great bar for another restaurant.

  • DarkAngel Lifetime Chicagoan, new Portage Park home owner

    Between the three, this one will be the shortest walk for me. Judging from the facade, I don't think Foundation will be cheap.

Gas Meter change

So just got my notice that People's will be tearing up my neighborhood and destroying my home to move my gas meter to the outside of my house.
I have a finished basement, so has anyone with a finished basement gone through this? (I fear they will just tear it apart and just leave a mess (I pray it is like the water meter, where they installed it AND put in a new access door in the finished wall, THAT was excellent service!)).

  • They put my meter put outside maybe 6 - 10 years ago. No fuss. They were happy to put the meter on the side of the house, beyond the chimney so it is invisible from the street. And they used one of several paint colors on it so it more...

    They put my meter put outside maybe 6 - 10 years ago. No fuss. They were happy to put the meter on the side of the house, beyond the chimney so it is invisible from the street. And they used one of several paint colors on it so it more ore less harmonizes with the brick. They put the new pipe in right next to the furnace and hot water tank so the connecting was minimal. They took out the old meter and some pipe and a second crew came later to replace the damaged plasterboard section. A landscaping crew reset the dirt from the narrow trench between the street and the house. They threw down seed. By a month later you'd never know the thing happened.

  • Stovewhisperer Owner, Chambers Stoves Chicago

    Placing a regulator inside a building is dangerous and should not be done. A meter CAN go inside a building, but not a regulator. For a full explanation, check out my blog post: http://chambersstoveschicago.blogspot.com/2013/09/regulation-and-regulators-they-beget.html

    I wish I could have changed the owner's mind on keeping the cat indoors, but unfortunately he feels it's completely ok to let the cat roam around and doesn't seem open to putting in the effort to keep the cat inside. And as the owner of the pet that is 100% his choice. All we can do as neighbors is keep an eye out for our furry friends, help them if they are distressed and attempt to educate others on the dangers of keeping pets outdoors, especially in the city. Several kids who brought the cat to us for help are also getting a lesson in what to do and that pets should be kept indoors... so I will take that as a small victory. I have 3 cats myself who are strictly indoor cats who are chipped and wear collars and we take every precaution to make sure they stay inside (one of which was a CACC rescue that had a life on the streets before we got him so he knows how good he's got things now... lol).

  • PortageParkGardener you sound like a wonderful,caring person.We do our best in saving animals but of coarse we can't save them all.I'm sure the owner love's Barack but will never understand why take the risk.Some people are just not as responsible as they should be. Good luck Barack
